Keating Farm

They say your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. To be with the love of your life, sharing a sacred moment promising to share your lives, love, and to grow as a family for the rest of your life. To most that is enough to make your wedding an unforgettable moment in of itself. Yet the stunning, lovely, picturesque Keating Farm was able to elevate our special day beyond compare.

Keating Farm’s amazing venue and unbeatable hospitality, provided an ultimate atmosphere of warmth, comfort, happiness, and love. From the rustic farmhouse suites to the stunning wood barn, through the orchid and into the memorable pristine wooden hall, our true farm wedding came true!

From the very day we arrived at Keating Farm for the first time we were certain this was where we would have our special moment. Keating Farm’s Rebecca greeted us with a warm welcoming, professionalism, and genuine kindness which was not forgotten and turned an already remarkable location into one that everyone should experience.

Despite being frantic and nervous the night before the wedding, Rebecca was there to assist with all our needs during our rehearsal and set up. Following into our wedding day, Rebecca, was again attentive and on scene floating in the background to ensure everything was perfect and for that we thank Rebecca very much!

With our ceremony out in the orchid and to stunning pictures in the fields we truly were able to capture our wedding experience that we longed for. With magnificent colours in the tress, the natural farm fields, the sunsetting in the background, Keating Farm was more than breath taking!

Keating Farm’s unbeatable large rustic wooden barn created a warm and unique atmosphere to allow friends and family to share laughter, food, drinks, and tears. It was a truly special arrangements for our first meal as newly weds. Again, Rebecca was there to help us set up the night before and provided stunning décor to tie everything together.

Not only was Keating Farm itself a gem, but we were truly able to experience a farm to table dinner. To remain local and to have Keating farm provided substance made our dinner all the more delicious. Supporting local was a big factor for us, and Keating Farm was able to deliver to perfection.

And finally, the grand hall. The cherry on top. The hidden wonder. The perfect place to sing and dance and come together to unleash the celebrations of a truly magnificent day! Foot stomping and handclapping, swinging and twirling, to pure entertainment, the grand hall at Keating Farm with its aura and warmth of the fireplaces, provided an antique feel with a modern celebration to create pure ecstasy! We were so grateful to have the dance party of a lifetime with our friends and family there thanks to Rebecca all her hard work!

With the night over and our friends and family laughing and singing all the way home thanks to Keating Farm’s warm wonders, we were again spoilt with the breathtaking suites for our first night as a married couple. Keating Farm is truly the place to be for an occasion so special!

Rebecca and Keating Farm were able to help us create our dream day, a day we will never forget! We will always hold Keating Farm dear in our hearts and wish everyone could share what we had at the unforgettable Keating Farm!

E & B - July 2022

We decided on Keating Farm as our wedding venue within minutes of touring the grounds. We knew we wanted a venue that would provide indoor/outdoor flexibility, raw beauty, and an intimate experience. We immediately started daydreaming about cocktail hour lawn games and friends catching up in the cozy living room.

The venue is steeped in history, with all buildings restored to their former glory... and then some! We had our ceremony in the picturesque pasture, a long table dinner in the nut orchard, and a roaring good time dancing in the great hall. We couldn't have imagined a more down to earth, elegant venue to celebrate with our friends and family. Almost a year out, our loved ones regularly comment on the kindness of the Keating Farm owners and the small details they noticed around the property.

Rebecca and George have created a gem in the Cowichan Valley. They are warm, welcoming, and responsive, making planning a breeze. Our vendors appreciated the attention to detail and behind the scenes flow that the mudroom and separate driveways provided.

Perfect Venue!

Our intimate ceremony was more than we could have asked for!
Like many, our original wedding day was affected by COVID and we had to postpone our larger family wedding. We wanted to mark our special day on Dec 3 anyway with an intimate ceremony and Keating Farm was the perfect venue.
Rebecca and George were so welcoming, responsive, flexible and easy to work with. The farmhouse is stunning with it's rich, dark wood and vaulted ceilings. We honestly felt right at home and all those pre-wedding jitters just melted away.
We highly recommend Keating Farm for your special day - big or small - you won't be disappointed!

Keating Farm uniquely offers an intimate setting with the all the potential and excitement of a large wedding. The owners were very warm and polite and maintained a friendly professionalism. My partner and I never felt pressure or anything, the couple who owns the farm were extremely helpful. It felt like we were having our wedding at a friends gorgeous property with all the services of a venue.
There house is stunning. Not only is it exterior beautiful but the breath taking moment happened when we entered the great hall, I have never seen a room quite as unique and beautiful.

Wedding Celebration at Keating Farm

We met Rebecca and George on a weekend morning in their charming farmhouse kitchen, over tea and cookies, and thus began our journey with Keating Farm and ultimately a most glorious wedding celebration on September 14th, 2019. As we toured the main floor of the farmhouse, it was evident that Rebecca and George were taking amazing care and attention to detail in restoring this century’s old home. From the beginning we were struck by the professionalism, combined with the warmth, friendliness and humour, that describe George and Rebecca. They welcomed our chosen vendors to tour the Farm to ensure that it was a match. Our vendors were overwhelmingly impressed with the site. Every question, every anxious moment or thought, we could bring to George and Rebecca and their collaboration was sincere. The communication was always timely and every detail was attended to. We were a team! As we arrived on the wedding day, the words chosen by our guests to describe Keating Farm were “stunning”, “magical”, “picturesque”, “remarkable”, “out of this world”, “peaceful”, and “breath-taking”! From cocktails and charcuterie boards on the divine porch as guests were greeted, to the marriage ceremony under the canopy of orchard trees, to the outdoor champagne toast, and then the evening meal in the great hall followed by dancing, it was a day to remember. Rebecca, George and your dear children, we cannot thank you enough for all that you provided that made our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding day so special, exceptional and distinctive. We are grateful we discovered Keating Farm and we encourage and cheer you on in all future happenings.
